Flushing shot 317 to win the team title. Holly was second with 322, followed by Powers Catholic 328, Fenton 330, host Linden 334 and Swartz Creek 343.

Byron’s Brandt Nelson and Powers’ Blaise Vanitvelt tied for first individually with 76s, one stroke ahead of Holly’s Kyle VanBoemel and Mitchell Hughes and Flushing’s Adam Evans and Joe Montpas. Four other golfers broke 80 on a mild day that turned sunny after noon.

A day earlier, the Hornets fell to Fenton 150-177. Flood shot 42, VanSteenburg and Phipps each shot 44 and Kross Kenny carded 47.
